GU Shan-qun, LIU Yan-feng, LI Jun, CHEN Xiang-bao, ZHANG Dai-jun, ZOU Qi, XIAO Feng
Journal of Materials Engineering    2019, 47 (8): 110-117.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2018.000501
Abstract   PDF (7774KB)
The carbon fiber/epoxy resin composites were prepared by the resin transfer molding (RTM) process. Effect of resin toughness and carbon fiber type on the high speed impact properties was investigated using the air cannon impact test. The effect of high speed impact damage on the residual compressive property of the composites was studied by the compression performance test of the samples which were impacted at high speed. The results demonstrate that the resin toughness can greatly reduce the internal damage degree of composite materials subjected to high speed impact, and can improve the anti-high speed impact property and residual compressive property of the composites. Also, the anti-high speed impact property of T700S carbon fiber reinforced composites is superior to that of the T800H carbon fiber reinforced composites. The results also indicate that failure modes are highly dependent on the impact velocity. Specifically, when the impact velocity is low, the composites appear a circular pit on the impact surface while the back surface appears a convex protrusion. Also, when the impact velocity is high, a circular hole is formed on the impact surface of composites, and the tearing fracture along the fiber direction is observed on the back surface.

Effect of spinning process on the properties of T800 carbon fiber and its reinforced composite
ZHANG Shi-jie, WANG Ru-min, LIU Ning, LIAO Ying-qiang, CHENG Yong
Journal of Materials Engineering    2019, 47 (8): 118-124.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2018.001454
Abstract   PDF (2965KB)
The surface conditions of the two different T800 carbon fibers by the wetting (T800HB) and the dry jet-wetting spinning processes (T800SC) were characterized and analyzed by scanning electron microscope (SEM), atomic force microscope (AFM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscope (XPS) and contacting-angle measuring instrument. The mechanical properties of their multifilaments, NOL rings and unidirectional laminates were evaluated by universal material testing machine. Results show that the surface of T800HB by wetting process is rougher, while the surface of T800SC by dry jet-wetting process is more chemical-active. Both chemical interaction and mechanical engagement between fiber and resin matrix result in the similar interlaminar shear strength (ILSS) of T800HB and T800SC. However, when the composite is damaged, the interfacial bonding of T800HB/resin seems tighter dominated by the mechanical engagement, leading to brittle fracture feature of T800HB reinforced composite, while T800SC reinforced composite exhibits ductile fracture feature with weaker interfacial bonding. In addition, the tensile strength of filament of T800SC is higher than that of T800HB. Accordingly, the tensile strength of NOL ring and unidirectional laminate composite of T800SC are higher than those of T800HB. Therefore, in combination of mechanical properties of carbon fibers by two kinds of spinning processes and their reinforced composites, as well as their fracture features, compared with T800HB, T800SC is more suitable to be the reinforcement of the composite fabricated by filament winding process.

High voltage Li- and Mn-rich layered oxide (LMRO) electrodes with different amount of conductive carbon black Super P were investigated to explore the effect of carbon black on electrochemical performance of the electrode and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were utilized to study the internal reason why the amount of Super P affects the performance of the electrode. The results show that the performance of cycle stability and high-rate capability of LMRO electrodes exhibit the tendency of increasing first and then decreasing with increase of Super P content, while the optimum performance of electrodes is obtained at 5% (mass fraction,the same below). With the increase of Super P content, electronic contact between LMRO particles and Super P particles can be improved, electrically conductive network can be constructed, resistance between electrode components can be decreased, and electrode polarization can be reduced. However, when the content is higher than 5%, Super P particles are easily agglomerated, which is undesirable for further improving the conductivity of electrode.

Journal of Materials Engineering    2019, 47 (9): 38-45.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2019.000284
Abstract   PDF (11309KB)
The 600℃ high temperature titanium alloy composite with graphene oxide addition was prepared by temperature-controlled mixing method and hot isostatic pressing. Microstructure and mechanical properties of composite were studied by metallographic observation, energy spectrum analysis, phase analysis and tensile test. The results show that graphene oxides are dispersed uniformly in the 600℃ high temperature titanium alloy powder when the content of graphene oxide is 0.3%(mass fraction) and the main mode of action is physical adsorption. Compared with the alloy without graphene oxide, the microstructure of the composite with 0.3% graphene oxide is obviously refined, and the average size of equiaxed alpha phase is reduced by 36%. Meanwhile, the average room temperature tensile strength and yield strength increase by 7.8% and 10.4% respectively and Vickers hardness increases by 25.6%. The strengthening mechanisms of graphene oxide on 600℃ high temperature titanium alloy mainly include grain refinement strengthening,dislocation streng-thening and precipitation strengthening of the (TiZr)6Si3 second-phase.

Research progress on carbon nano-materials to construct Li-ion and Li-S batteries of high performance
WU Yi-fang, CHONG Shao-kun, LIU Yong-ning, GUO Sheng-wu, BAI Li-feng, ZHANG Cui-ping, LI Cheng-shan
Journal of Materials Engineering    2020, 48 (4): 25-35.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2019.000590
Abstract   PDF (5426KB)
Carbon solely can form a lot of nanostructures, such as zero-dimensional nanosphere, one-dimensional nanotube and two-dimensional graphene. They perform differently in Li-ion and Li-S batteries. It is worth noting that CNTs and graphene are not appropriate to be used as electroactive materials for Li-ion or Li-S batteries for four reasons. First, when CNTs and graphene are used as an anode, they often exhibit high specific capacities during the first lithiation step, but a large fraction of lithium ions is irreversibly consumed instead of reversibly stored, leading to a low Coulombic efficiency of the cell. Second, a graphene-based anode has a large voltage hysteresis in the charge/discharge curves. Third, it has been reported a CNT-based anode lacks a steady voltage plateau with large change in voltage during discharge. Fourth, despite their high initial capacities, graphene and CNT-based anodes often suffer from fast capacity decay after a few tens of cycles. Continuous efforts have been made to build better lithium batteries with a higher energy density and wider applicability, including both current state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries and near-term Li-S batteries. Because the behavior of a rechargeable battery is mainly based on the performance of its anode and cathode, designing advanced electrode materials as well as electrode with tailored compositions and structures has been the hot topic in recent years. The role of carbon nano-materials to construct electrode materials and tailored electrodes in Li-ion and Li-S batteries in high performance was reviewed in the paper from three aspects. Firstly, the role of carbon nano-materials in modifying the electroactive materials was discussed from three aspects:electron- and ion-transport facilitators, immobilization sites and volume expansion buffering. Secondly, the role of carbon nano-materials in optimizing the inactive components was considered as follows:conducting additives, current collectors and conductive interlayers. Thirdly, the role of carbon nano-materials in designing the bendable and stretchable devices are discussed from three aspects:conductive phases in nonconductive substrates, flexible current collectors and freestanding composite electrode. Finally, perspectives on future development of Li-ion and Li-S batteries were presented. It is considered that multi-functional carbon nano-materials will be main research focus in the future.

Effect of fluorinated multi-walled carbon nanotubes as cathode on performance of Li/CFx batteries
LI Xu, SUN Xiao-gang, CAI Man-yuan, WANG Jie, CHEN Wei, CHEN Long, QIU Zhi-wen
Journal of Materials Engineering    2019, 47 (8): 22-27.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2017.001307
Abstract   PDF (3066KB)
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes(MWCNTs) were fluorinated to get the material of MWCNTs fluoride with different atomic ratio. The ratio of fluorine and carbon was 0.28(CF0.28), 0.56(CF0.56) and 0.78(CF0.78) respectively. The fluoride MWCNTs were used as cathode active material to coat on aluminum foil, lithium metal foil as counter electrode in Li/CFx batteries. The structures and properties were characterized by thermal gravimetric analyzer(TGA), scanning electron microscopy(SEM), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), X-ray diffraction(XRD), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS). The electrochemical performance was tested by galvanostatic discharge test. The results show that the battery with CF0.78 has the best electrochemical performance. At the current density of 39mA/g, the battery displays high discharge specific capacity of 724mAh/g and appears with a more stable platform for the discharge process. At the current discharge rate of 0.05C, the utilization of three kinds of MWCNTs fluoride electrodes is 73.4%, 89.6%, 92.9%. When the discharge rate is 2C, batteries with three different MWCNTs fluoride have discharge specific capacity attenuation rate of 68.8%, 34.1%, and 39.6%. It indicates that the discharge specific capacity attenuation rate can be mitigated to a certain extent with the improved level of fluoridation. Although the discharge capacity attenuation rate of CF0.78 is higher than that of CF0.56, CF0.78 has the most stable discharge curve at the same discharge rate.
